The ABC’s of Panty Hose for Women of Color


Winter and covering your legs go hand-in-hand but navigating the tricky world of panty hose is not for the faint of heart. It’s even more difficult when panty hose aren’t readily available that compliment your rich skin tone. Check out these tips for shopping and caring for your panty hose:

1. Clear Polish

Like mama said, clear polish is your best bet to stop your panty hose from running. Blow on it for 30 seconds to get it to dry and you’re good to go.

2. Try hairspray.

Hairspray also works to harden the fibers in your panty hose and stop them from tearing.

3. Wash your pantyhose by hand.

The quickest way to damage pantyhose is to put them in the washer and dryer, which can be harsh on the delicate fibers. Be sure to wash them by hand with care.

4. Store them in a separate drawer.

Store your panty hose in a separate drawer and to be extra careful, store them in a plastic bag to keep them from clinging onto other fabrics.
